Coordinator notes: Since Sara Orange-tips are in Ventura County and the other two species in that group are not, that picture is more than good enough.-I have been in Ventura County several times recently including last June 4th...we saw a Veined Blue and northern White Skipper explosion.-Ken Davenport
